Lysacek, Davis-White enter International Classic
SALT LAKE CITY -- Olympic champion Evan Lysacek is expected to compete for the first time since winning the Vancouver gold medal in the International Figure Skating Classic.
The second edition of the event will be held Sept. 11-15 in Salt Lake City and will feature more than 70 athletes representing nearly 20 countries. Lysacek hoped to end a personal hiatus last season, but was not healthy enough to compete.
World ice dance champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White, the five-time reigning U.S. champs, will be joined by current U.S. men's gold medalist Max Aaron, U.S. women's silver medalist Gracie Gold, and reigning U.S. pairs champions Marissa Castelli and Simon Shnapir.
The international field will include skaters from Canada, France, Germany, Israel, and Taiwan. International athletes will be confirmed at a later date.
